Varner's Bee Farm 

 

Well it is official we are back to Varner's Bee Farm.

 Those with questions let me know.

Queens

I focuses on raising high-quality honeybees from genetics proven to perform well for us here in Pennsylvania. After multiple evaluations and intense selection criteria for several highly-valued traits, I identifies the top queens in our colonies from which to rear drones and to graft larvae to produce daughter queens for our own use. I do treat for mites at very high levels but only if I think the hive will die , because we want bees which take care of themselves without much help from us and which perform well while we work them hard.

We love helping the small hobbyist beekeeper who may only need one or two queens once or twice a year, but with enough advance notice we can produce very large volumes of high-quality laying queens for commercial beekeepers too.
